Cyc­ling trips and hol­i­days

North Rhine-West­phalia is the num­ber one des­tin­a­tion for cyc­ling in Ger­many

The statewide net­work of cycle paths, link­ing all of NRW’s cit­ies and mu­ni­cip­al­it­ies with stand­ard­ised sign­post­ing, is around 14,000 kilo­metres long. This is the dis­tance from Co­logne to Tierra del Fuego! Around 700 “Bed & Bike” ac­com­mod­a­tion pro­viders in NRW wel­come vis­it­ors on two wheels.

With a statewide net­work of cycle paths cov­er­ing al­most 29,000 kilo­metres, cyc­lists are free to dis­cov­er un­spoilt nature, quaint vil­lages and large cit­ies at their own pace, or even ex­plore the en­tire length of a river. Forty themed routes take in im­port­ant his­tor­ic­al sites, river val­leys and dis­used rail­way lines, all on well-de­veloped cyc­ling path­ways. And cyc­lists keen to ex­plore North Rhine-West­phalia don?t even need to take their own bike thanks to a well-dis­trib­uted net­work of rent­al points. There is also a plen­ti­ful sup­ply of ?Bed & Bike? es­tab­lish­ments of­fer­ing rest and re­lax­a­tion for tired limbs at the end of an act­ive day. Mean­while, those who prefer to take in the beau­ti­ful coun­tryside without the ef­fort of ped­alling can rent an ul­tra-mod­ern elec­tric bike. With steep hills and long dis­tances, no obstacle, only the views will prove breath­tak­ing!
